Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

We user the Cisco Firepower 1120 in a variety of use cases across our division. We typically use it in a high-availability configuration, both in the same room together and separated via some distance. The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series has been a nice upgrade from our previous models of Cisco Firewalls.

We have benefited from the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series's simplified administration; it has a configuration consistent with previous product families with the Cisco Firewall Suite. We are still able to use the standard CLI to continue to use standard configuration and use cases throughout our environment.
We have a small set of use cases that we use the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series within our organization. The performance that the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series provides for these functions is consistent with what we expect and have experienced with previous Cisco Firewalls. We are happy with the performance.
We have had only good experiences with support when it comes to the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series family of firewalls. Cisco TAC is always completely responsive and able to provide any technical assistance. For times when we don't go directly to Cisco TAC, the Cisco Community also has a lot of resources that assist with questions.
The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is the next step forward from specifically the Cisco ASA 5505/5506 products. We have found that it functions as we expect it to and we have another reliable product in our portfolio of Cisco hardware that we use in our environment. We have found no issues in the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series.
The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is well suited to simplified firewall solutions where you want to get reliable performance for a great price point. We use this Cisco Firepower 1000 Series platform for small VPN sites as well as for guest firewalls, among other solutions that you can use this product for.
